John's Mon's Pumpkin Pie

Use 1 cup measuring cup to add evaporated milk & regular milk to pan. Add evaporated milk & then regular milk so adds up to 3 cups total.
Heat milk over medium heat until gets a scum on top.
Mix pumpkin filling
Add pumpkin, sugar, salt, & spices to large mixing bowl & stir well

I use Pillsbury pie crusts for 2 pies.
Pour pumpkin mixture into 2 unbaked pie crusts. Be careful not to slop any on the top of the crusts.
Bake at 425 degrees for 15 minutes
Bake at 325 degrees for 45 minutes or until the top of the pie puffs up.
